So why do investors want access to lithium?
First is the ion battery supply chain?
The investment story is indeed a case study for economics 101.
With regard to battery metals, limited supply, coupled with increased global demand.
What are the key factors driving lithium demandion batteries? Lithium-
Ion batteries are pushing for a technological revolution.
5 times the energy density of the lead battery, rechargeable lithium-
Ion batteries power mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, robots and drones.
While technological advances and lower costs drive lithium
In the past few years, the ion batteries of mobile devices have been booming, and the next demand will come from electric vehicles and energy storage to power the future of green technology.
The biggest reason for demand growth is the growing global demand for electric vehicles.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasts transportation demand for lithium
Soon, consumer electronics, including smartphones, will demand more than ion batteries.
What is the percentage of growth we are talking about?
According to Orbis Research, lithium worldwide
The ion battery market, which accounts for $29.
86 billion in 2017, $139 is expected.
Between 36 billion and 2026, it grew at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18. 7%.
But Goldman Sachs predicts that, driven by an increase in electric vehicle battery production, battery demand will grow at a CAGR of 32% by 2025.
At the end of 2017, the global penetration rate of electric vehicles in the automotive market was only 1%.
Keep in mind that the electric car battery is about 4,500 smartphones!
This means an acceleration of growth space and related demand.
What is the driving force for the growth of electric vehicles?
The government\'s goal in fuel efficiency and emissions will further motivate automakers to boost production of electric vehicles.
More and more countries are promising to ban or at least limit the sales of internal combustion engine cars in the coming decades as part of efforts to reduce air pollution.
China is now the world\'s largest electric vehicle market, with the highest growth rate in sales of electric vehicles.
Electric vehicles currently account for only 3.
With 3% of China\'s auto market, pollution problems in China are more likely to be electrified.
It has been leading the way in step-by-step subsidies, penetration targets, investment and the number of electric vehicle models with over 100 options.
The government strongly encourages consumers to buy electric vehicles, the only way to ensure license plates are obtained in crowded cities.
In 2017, China sold more than 600,000 electric vehicles, up 71% from the previous year.
China is focusing on the sales quota for electric vehicles, which may mean that electric vehicles or plug-in cars will become the fifth new car by 2025in.
China is also a major player in lithium
About 55% of the world\'s lithium-ion battery supply side
In contrast, the output of ion batteries in the United States is 10%.
Lithium in China
The supply of ion batteries is expected to grow to 65% by 2021.
Another factor that supports more adoption of electric vehicles is that battery prices continue to become cheaper.
Average price of lithium-
The ion battery pack dropped to $209/kilowatt-
By 2025, hours and prices will drop further below $100/kWh.
For large-scale adoption, the price of electric and hybrid cars needs to be comparable to that of natural gas
Electric cars without subsidies.
According to a survey by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, lithium-
The price of ion batteries has dropped by more than 70% since 2010.
Tesla\'s battery price hovered around $400 a kilowatt hour a few years ago and is now close to $150 a kilowatt hour.
Global automakers have pledged $90 billion in electric vehicles and battery technology, including $19 billion in the United States, $21 billion in China and $52 billion in Germany.
Volvo in China
The Swedish brand has announced that it will stop producing traditional natural gas.
Electric cars in 2019.
The biggest investment comes from Volkswagen, which plans to spend $40 billion by 2030 to make an electrified version of its 300 cars.
Plus global models.
Some of the biggest obstacles-
Market penetration is a climate impact on battery performance and a challenge for charging infrastructure.
Electric vehicle manufacturers have implemented many solutions to solve temperature problems, including changing battery design, improving battery management systems, climate grading systems, and pre-processing of engine rooms.
In addition, faster charging time and larger charging capacity are expected to go online, which helps to reduce \"range anxiety\" and further promote the public. Market adoption.
Global demand for lithium is growing
Ion batteries that supply electricity to consumer equipment, electric vehicles and grid storage, coupled with limited supply and capacity, create conditions that continue to push up the price of battery metals and mining stocks.
This has also stimulated investment activities in the field.
This growth trend creates significant opportunities for investing in the fundamental elements contained in lithium
In view of the limited capacity of the supply to meet the growing demand for lithium, Ion batteries such as: Source: EQM index-
The prices of ion batteries, potential battery metals, and companies that mine them should continue to rise.
Investors in companies that develop and produce battery metal may be rewarded.
Investors may get investment in battery metals and mining companies through direct investment, but many key players in the field live outside the United StatesS.
Mainly in Canada, Australia, South America and China.
Many of these companies only trade local stock versions that are difficult for the United States. S.
Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) provide investors with a great tool to diversify their investments in this growing global trend.
Let\'s compare the two purest.
Game Options: The New amplified premium Battery Metals and Materials ETF and the Global X lithium battery technology ETF (ETF ).
Until recently, WhatsApp was the only ETF option with a lithium theme
Ion battery growth.
Over the past few years, Groupon has achieved great success in attracting investors\' assets.
ETF-managed assets are just under $1 billion, currently at $997. 7 million.
The new player BATT was launched in June 6, 2018 for $2 million.
So what is the biggest difference between these two ETF options?
